Mr. Rogers :  Please Forgive My Neighbor

By G.P. Avants I look over at my wife and she is already in tears ten minutes into Won’t You Be My Neighbor. Tom Hanks is portraying Fred Rogers down to a tee capturing the man behind the story. I think what got to both of us was experiencing nostalgia from our childhood and the…

The Essence of Steve Rogers 

    By G. P. Avants I relate to super characters differently. I am sure by now with all of my Spiderman posts you have seen why he is my favorite superhero. The fact that he has the powers of a Spider is really only half of Peter Parker’s persona. He is a normal guy…

Welcome to the Human Race, Anne Droid 

By G.P. Avants Welcome back on board the Raza and the world of Dark Matter. The soften-spoken android, the heart and soul of that vessel, has been upgraded. Her time among humans has changed her status. I think her name Ann Droid is a more fitting title than just a piece of soul less hardware….

Do Our Lives Matter? 

  By G. P. Avants   My brother Ron steered me into a whole new Sci-Fi universe when he told me about the show Dark Matter. Ron said I would find the stories interesting and the characters very relatable He wasn’t wrong. Right from the start I found this show unique in its own way, yet…

Justice League: Everybody knows…

    By G. P Avants     Justice League started off with a music video letting us know that everyone knows the truth. The world has changed since the death of Superman. What I took away from this film was viewing a group of individuals trying to find their place in a changing history. Catching…

A Strange Strange World

With both Marvel (MCU) (Strange / Iron Fist) and DC (Enchantress) movies are getting into the world of magic. I thought it was time to give my perspective on the matter. It’s a very sensitive subject in the Christian community,  for reasons i can only assume come from fear and misunderstanding. Let’s try to take some of…

Forgive them, They’re only human

With the Inhuman’s in somewhat of a limbo for phase 3 of the MCU, ABC’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. has a great opportunity to become the show that I’m sure we all dreamed it would be. Running along side the latest in the MCU timeline and building a solid roster of Marvel new and classic characters…

Seeing Gray in the Red, White, and Blue

By G.P.Avants Here we are dropped into the midst of a nation in conflict. In Captain America Civil War two different philosophies are coming head-to-head. I am an Ironman fan, but in this wave front I can see where Captain America is coming from. There are times when man-made rules don’t quite solve a problem….

Human Among Meta-Humans

By GPAvants   I just finished the first season of The Flash. Time and destiny are the big themes that run through this show. Some people feel like destiny is something that they are a slave to and others try and forge their own path, in spite of what the future might hold for them….

Slow &Go

G.P. Avants   Have you seen The Flash? Even if you blink you might miss him of you aren’t looking for him. It is a great show that I had been too busy to watch, but finally slowed down enough to get Barry Allen’s story.   Barry, due to a freak accident, has become the…

Civil War – The Line in the Sand (Friendship)

R3 – Rodriguez Steve Rogers: “Sorry, Tony. You know I wouldn’t do this if i had any other choice. But he’s my friend. Tony Start: “So was I” Is everybody as excited about the upcoming Marvel movie, Captain America: Civil War as I am? What an amazing movie this is going to be, which one…

Bruce, Don’t Fear the Knight.

G. P.Avants   When Superman v Batman arrived we met a very different Batman. Time has passed for the Dark Knight. He is now an older more mature superhero later in his life. Along comes a newcomer on the hero stage, who shakes up the meaning of a real superhero. What would that do to a…
